10 Resources to Better Understand Dyslexia
Imagine trying to read a sentence when every other word looks like made-up gibberish. It’s exhausting to read the sentence over and over again, trying to put together the meaning. That one troublesome sentence is followed by another… and another… and another… You know it’s not your fault – it’s the text doesn’t make sense. Now imagine that you’re in a room full of your peers, but you’re the only one who seems to be having trouble. You’re sociable, intelligent, and creative, but you’re terrified you’ll be asked to read aloud and anxious you won’t be able to retain the information you need to. According to recent study out of Yale, this is the daily reality for 1 out of 5 people: this is the world of the dyslexic. Because dyslexia is so common, everyone can benefit from getting better at recognizing, understanding, and working with people who have dyslexia, helping to convey the information in a way that’s easier for them to process. 1. 2. 3.
